A third, less polemical definition comes from Japan, where a Tokyo Institute of Technology architecture professor named Masahiro Chatani developed a technique for cutting and folding single pieces of paper into elaborate 3-D models, drawing on traditional Japanese card making and pop-up books. Chatani died in 2008, but a number of artists have continued his Origamic work, among them, Dutch artist Ingrid Siliakus.

Siliakus studied Chatani’s work in pattern books for years before attempting her first cut, but since then, her work has appeared in dozens of exhibitions and on the covers of the New York Times Style Magazine and Wallpaper*.

Here is a list of the most common mechanisms used in pop-up creation: - V-Folds: These can be cut and folded directly into the main piece of card, or can be created by adding an additional section of card for the pop-up shape. V-folds are very versatile and are where, simply enough, a V shape is created with the pop-up section. It’s either the folds made in the base card, or the connections between the separate pop-up section and the base card, which produce the ‘V’ shape when the base card is open. This is the difference from box folds (see below), which are created using parallel horizontal or vertical folds rather than making use of V shaped angles. . - Box folds (also called Interval Stands or Layers): These are created with vertical or horizontal folds and cuts in order to produce 3D box shapes.
